Gas Sorption- Chemisorption- Catalyst Characterization

autosorb iQ-C-AG, iQ-C-MP, iQ-C-XR


When bench space is at a premium and maximum capability is essential. The only combined chemisorption-physisorption manometric analyzer that features built-in degassing stations and optional second and third physisorption ports. Built-in TCD options for flow chemisorption methods puts these models even further ahead of the field.


These analyzers are unrivalled in catalyst characterization capability: one moment a rapid surface area and pore size analyzer, the next they are measuring active metal area and dispersion, even temperature programmed analyses. The mass spectrometer option for the MP and XR models is truly unique and remarkably cost-effective, it being close-coupled via a built-in vacuum chamber and gas sampling system.


The Autosorb iQ-C-XR/MP are powerful micropore size distribution analyzers too.


The Autosorb iQ-C-AG is available as a chemisorption-only model
(the Autosorb iQ -C-AG/ND without degassing stations).

The Full iQ series






When micropore size distribution aren't needed, the iQ-C-AG is the perfect solution for characterizing mesopore catalysts. The iQ-C-AG/ND chemisorption only model is perfectly suited for those labs that don't need any additional physisorption capabilities.


The Chemisorption model has the necessary additional features for characterizing catalysts using flow methods of preparation and static isotherm measurements, yet retains all of the physisorption abilities of the standard version. A second and even a third physisorption station can be added.


The micropore physisorption-only models features a high-vacuum system and additional low pressure transducers for high-quality, detailed micropore studies in addition to mesopore and surface area measurements. It is available with up to three micropore analysis stations and can be upgraded to the Chemi version.
